directions

FOR THE PANCAKES:

Heat the apple juice until boiling. In a medium bowl, pour over the oats and wheat germ; stir.

Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and sea salt in a bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, beat together the buttermilk, maple syrup, butter and eggs. Add the dry ingredients. Stir in the oats, apples and cranberries.

Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto a hot, greased griddle and turn when the edges look dry and the top bubbles. Flip and cook until golden brown.

FOR THE MAPLE BUTTER CREAM:

Beat the butter until creamy and add the maple syrup. Beat the heavy cream until stiff. Fold the cream into the butter mixture. Serve with warm pancakes.
